Pros: The host is a great and helpful person! He welcomed us happily. Great breakfast and cofffee! The room is together with a garage. We liked the sounds of monkeys and plants around the place . Quite close to the archeological site.
Cons: The only thing I didn't like was cold water in the jacuzzi.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Clean rooms, nice whirlpool. Staff was helpful. You park your car right below your unit - the garage is the entry to your room.
Cons: There is a big garden, that could be created more comfy (hammocks, lounges, tabled etc). There is nothing there apart from the whirlpool. There is no staff in the evening and no restaurant, drink etc available.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Don’t hesitate! Go to this place. It is really quiet and peacefull. It is in te jungle and the hotel is small. There is a tub (with bubbels) outside (so no need for swimming pool:)). The rooms are really luxury, hottube inside and a big bed. And the staff is wonderful, they do everything to make you feel comfortable. Carlos is really generous, friendly and warm man. O and the breakast is delicious:)
Cons: Nada
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I wanted to stay outside of Palenque in the jungle and that was exactly what I got. Breakfast was delicious, fresh fruit, good coffee and sweet bread. The owner was a lovely man. He went above and beyond to make sure I was ok. He even wanted to send me off with a packed breakfast when I had to leave on an early flight. It was beautiful, tranquil and overall a lovely stay.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. The owner is such a nice person, he tries to welcome every guest and he is a person that is willing to help you. He was so nice than the day we arrived and we were starving, he gave us a ride to Palenque Downtown to the area where the restaurants are located. Breakfast is simple but delicious and fulfilling. The hotel is not big and it is in the middle of nowhere but it has a nice garden and each room has a parking spot.
Cons: You have to take a bus, taxi or getting a car to get to the property. Its not terrible but you really need a transportation to make it either to the town or to the ruins (it is not expensive around 5 usd). The place does not have lunch or dinner, so this is more a place to relax after exploring the ruins or the town and thats all.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Carlos is an amazing host. So helpful and really made our stay so enjoyable. The hotel is modern spacious and very well appointed. It is well located in a beautiful setting close to the ruins.

Cons: Nothing I can think of.

The hotel has a very nice tropical garden with an outdoor jaccuzzi. The breakfast, with lots of fruits including from the garden, is amazing! Thank you very much for having us!

Cons: Nothing. It was all wonderful
10.0 Excellent
Pros: What a beautiful hotel in the middle of the jungle! You can tell the owner took time to make this a resort where both people and animals come to relax (a family of howler monkeys lives in the backyard of this hotel!!!). It really gave us the jungle experience we were looking for (didn't take a jungle tour at the archeological site anymore because the hotel is located in the middle of the jungle and wildlife can be seen around the hotel). The staff could speak proper English (something you don't see everywhere in Mexico) and they gave us bananas whenever we wanted to feed the howler monkeys. The room was amazing, very spacious and luxurious. Would love to have that shower at home! Also very clean. Especially for the owner: wir haben die Deutsche gründlichkeit wirklich bemerkt bei euch. Vielen dank für diese wundervolle Erfahrung! Sie können stolz sein auf was Sie hier gemacht haben!
Cons: Palenque itself isn't that interesting (the city centre I mean). So if you want to see the archeological site and the jungle, see howler monkeys closeby and other animals like macaw parrots flying over and relax at a beautiful pool, then you should really stay in this hotel. Nothing bad to say about the hotel. Trust me: it's worth every penny!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This boutique hotel is a bit pricey but it’s worth every penny!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Really nice place deep in the jungle of palenque. Staff is great and the facilties as well. Plus, there was a monkey family living within the premises. How amazing is that!

It was great to spend the day sightseeing and return to the gorgeous pool. Most appreciated was the high level professional assistance and service we were given throughout our stay - at the reception, Sergio took great care of us, as well as all the attentive servers at the restaurant. We look forward to returning!
Hotel Casa Lakyum - Palenque - Building

8.9 Excellent (323 reviews)
Overview Reviews

The air-conditioned rooms include a ceiling fan and a terrace with garden views. The bathrooms are private and come with shower and free toiletries. This property is 20 minutes’ drive from Misol-Ha and Agua Azul Waterfalls. Villahermosa International Airport is 1 hour and 45 minutes’ drive away and Palenque Local Airport is 10 minutes’ drive away.
2.5 Mediocre
Cons: Careful the manager is a thief. When you arrive he will not make you pay 16% taxes as agreed on booking.com but 30%. He said we should have booked through airbnb. And finally kept 25% of the caution. The rest of the crew is nice.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: It's a lovely hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location within a very short driving distance of the Palenque ruins. Beautiful property with pool overlooking the forest – beautiful to wake up to the sounds of Scarlet Macaws and howler monkeys! The room was deluxe, spacious, sparkling clean, and AC worked like a dream (very welcome in the strong heat and humidity). Staff were friendly and helpful, and I especially enjoyed conversations with the outgoing chef. Breakfast (in the realm of $5) was really tasty – I definitely recommend the ice-cold juice, strong coffee, and delicious tamales and chilaquiles. And, as a bonus, filtered water is available free on-site for guests. Overall, I highly recommend Hotel Casa Lakyum. Just a friendly reminder: the Palenque-area seems to have a higher density of scorpions than other areas in the lowland jungle of Chiapas. Always remember to check inside clothes and shoes before putting them on, especially first thing in the morning!
Cons: Wifi is only available in the reception area (doesn't quite reach rooms).
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice facilities and welcoming and helpful staff. Excellent value for money. The view from the terrace is breathtaking and the atmosphere is peaceful and quiet. The breakfast was amazing.
Cons: Nothing really, except the poor wifi signal in my bedroom but it is a minor detail
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Amazing view on the jungle from the breakfast terrasse or the swimming pool. A 60’s legacy charming hotel which is perfectly located for visiting the ruins and enjoying the nature. The jungle sounds ambiance at sunrise and sunset are peaceful. Good breakfast and very kind personnel.
6.3 Good
Pros: - The view - Clean rooms - Good AC
Cons: - the team, very unfriendly although we tried to speak spanish a lot, and not helpful at all - They tried to scam us for 400 pesos - no hot water - you can order almost nothing from the restaurant, they had no juices or anything else left
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's position is just fantastic. Near Palenque city but also near the ruins. It's very easy to catch a collective bus to the ruins and ff you like to walk, you can start on the top, walk down to the lower entrance and from there walk to the hotel. There is a good walking way. Although it is beside the road (separate lane) there is not much traffic on that road and with some luck you see monkeys, buterflies or lizards just beside the road. The hotel is also nice to just spend one day at the pool and relax.
Cons: There is no restaurant service at the hotel but there are restaurants nearby.
Hotel La Aldea del Halach Huinic - Palenque - Pool

8.8 Excellent (1,314 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Located in Palenque, Hotel La Aldea del Halach Huinic is in a rural location, within a 5-minute drive of Aluxes Eco Park and Museo de Sitio Palenque. Featured amenities include a business center, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a 24-hour front desk. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The rooms were comfortable and the pool was fantastic. We were glad to be slightly outside of bustling Palenque and close to the ruins which were easily accessed using either a taxi or the Collectivo which stops right outside the hotel in both directions. The family owned restaurant next door to the hotel called Bajlum is real treat.
Cons: The only drawback was the restaurant in the hotel. Breakfast was good but for an evening meal give it a miss and walk next door to Bajlum and enjoy traditional Mayan cuisine whilst supporting the local community.
7.1 Good
Pros: Hotel has got a lot of potential.
Cons: WiFi not working in the room - problem not solved by the personnel. Asking for an extra towel seemed to be a very difficult question. Pool not accessible upon arrival
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The room was clean, spacious. They have a beautiful garden and a refreshing, big swimming pool.
Cons: The water pressure of the shower was horrendous.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is in the middle of the nature, when you wake up in the morning you can hear birds. It was nice to be close to the entrance of Palenque ruins. I really appreciated the fact that we were allowed to leave our luggage at the reception, stay at the swimming pool and shower even after the check out. We really enjoyed meeting one of the staff who was happy to discuss with us about Mexico. The room was also pretty big and clean.
Cons: Unfortunately, the breakfast is not included and quite expensive at the restaurant of the hotel. When we arrived (very late) for the check in, we were not very well welcome by the person at the desk reception who couldn't find my reservation (it took almost 30 minutes). This is just to explain, as from other comments, that this is not the most friendly place you will find in Mexico and it's definitely expensive for the service, but for it's perfect for one night to visit the ruins.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable, clean, kind staffing, lot of plants around.
Cons: I love this place.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Nice garden
Cons: The whole place smelled of mould! The bathroom in particular.. Pictures of the room are highly misleading... in particular, that very nice hammock is nothing but a wrinkled and mouldy net that smells from a distance; the swimming pool is not inviting at all, again very different from the picture shown. Rooms are small
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hotel in great, forested surroundings. Lovely pool. Nice staff. Convenient for Palenque ruins -- don't miss the museum! Recommended
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very beautiful room, really comfortable and clean. The location right in the jungle is amazing, with hammocks and great swimming pool. The staff is so nice and attentive. I would really recommend this experience to anyone!
Cons: Nothing
9.2 Excellent
Pros: What a great place! Beautiful grounds, middle of the jungle, with a very nice pool and pool sitting area, very comfortable and classy rooms with great porches with hammocks, WiFi works wonderfully as does everything else. Palenque itself is slightly boring if you stay more than a day or two, but this place makes a longer stay totally worth it.
Cons: The restaurant is not good enough for the quality of the rest of the hotel - and the problem with being on that piece of road is you need a taxi to get to another place to eat. Refill point of water is there but not advertised, had to go asking for it.
9.4 Excellent
Pros: Neat setting, lovely pool, some of the best food of our trip, loved the AC in the room and hammock on the front deck. Could hear the Holler Monkeys from the Hotel.
Cons: Staff was meh.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is just in the middle of nature. Room was comfortable and the restaurant is good.

Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
5.4 Okay
Pros: The room was comfortable but the service was dreadful. Staff at reception was not welcoming, nor very professional. To give you an idea, our breakfast voucher was given to us when we checked out. The level of English of the reception staff was very poor and that created problems of communication. In the restaurant, staff was also not very professional as they seem to be anxious to get rid of guests at breakfast time. As soon as you had finished one dish they rushed to remove the plates or cups from the table. It would have been nice to enjoy my breakfast with some peace and quiet,
Cons: See above
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The pool was really nice, the food is not bad. The team was super friendly and helpful. The parking was full when we got there,but we were offered a different parking spot or to park in the street for free ( we were told it was safe, and indeed it was.) There is a mini fridge in the room, and the room is large. Internet was good. The location is really nice and there are nice restaurants in the area.

Pros: This hotel was the best choice!
4.2 Okay
Pros: Grounds and pool.
Cons: The restaurant food was terrible and we didn't get what we ordered for breakfast. Both meals, chilaquiles and bfast burrito were missing eggs! Potato was uncooked. We paid top dollar for this bfast and it was incomplete and substandard. Dinner was not good either. We paid for a taxi into town for our other meals. The bed was rock hard and very uncomfortable. There was hardly anyone staying at the resort yet they decided to put us in a room close to reception so when the power went out during the storm in the middle of the night we were so close to the extremely loud generator that kept us awake. It didn't even turn the aircon/ power back on so it was really hot. Then to top that off they decided that 8.30am was a good time to start mowing right outside our room. It is a huge resort but they mowed directly at the front of our room! They also mowed the morning before so we could not sleep in that day either. We were quoted 400 pesos for an airport taxi by reception to find out the going rate is only 200 pesos so we organized our own taxi. The service was very slow and we felt uncomfortable in the restaurant like cd we were ordering the wrong things.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Literally right in the jungle, I loved it.
Cons: Little complicated for accidental charges. We had to pay at the premises, I wish they allowed us to charge to our room whenever we have drink at the bar.

Pros: Convenient location 250m from the bus station in the less frenetic Canada district, along with a few other hotels, cafes and restaurants. Large clean rooms.
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: I booked a room in the hotel on the basis of the good review it received and because of the location and the cultural experience I was hoping to receive. being a world travel and have already experienced different localities /hotels/ hostels/ resorts/ boutique hotels in Mexico. I must say that this hotel was the worst experience I had. I left my shoes to dry out on the terrace one day and the moment I realized that I lost it. I emailed and called the hotel and they said that they will look for it. once I retired to Chiapas after couple of days. they told me that they didn't find it. after making sure that I m serious about this shoe - not for its price but out of the principle that I dislike being robbed in a place that is full of cameras and in a place that is suppose to be respectful. they said that they will check the camera monitor during that day . after I returned in couple of days - they said they couldn't tell. - Maybe it was a ghost. that doesnt matter - what matters is that I will be returning to Chiapas in couple of days and will be filling a police claim in the hope that this hotel learns its lesson faster in the future. Best, Gheen Hamed
Cons: robbery.

Pros: Staff are incredibly friendly. We had an early check out (3am) and staff were incredibly accommodating and pre arranged a taxi for us. Large bedrooms, very comfy beds. Restaurant is a little on the pricey side but excellent service and delicious food, plus very understanding of our dietary requirements and really happy to help. Hotel is an easy 15 mins walk from the centre of palenque. Too far from the bus station to walk but very cheap taxis (30 pesos) so not a major problem.
Cons: Some of the facilities are a little tired, and the gym equipment was broken. Only one of the pools was in use and it was 31C so very warm and not as refreshing as we would have hoped!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was definitely the best hotel I have been during my whole trip through Yucatán . Price comfort relation is absolutely fantastic .
6.7 Good
Pros: Considering Palenque is in the middle of nowhere the Hotel was OK. Nice staff though we had a hard time to communicate without speaking Spanish.

7.5 Good
Pros: It was very clean and comfortable and the staff were lovely and attentive. The staff are faultless. It is the type of hotel I hated.
Cons: The hotel is ridiculously overpriced. Everything is expensive. The restaurant is not good at all and is very expensive. Far from town. Big tour bus resort sort of place. Tour buses pull in and vomit 50 to 100 people into the hotel for one night. Not appropriate for individual travellers.
4.2 Okay
Pros: Couple of the staff were friendly and helpful, their colleagues should take note.
Cons: Booked a tour through hotel, later discover i was overcharged by $800 (mistake ???) I did manage to get a refund but not without a load of hassle and delay. Espresso coffee costs $100 ... really Walls are paper thin, you hear everything from the other rooms On Paper the hotel promises so much, i hope that in future the reality will reflect the advertising

10.0 Excellent

The rooms are really luxury, hottube inside and a big bed. And the staff is wonderful, they do everything to make you feel comfortable. Carlos is really generous, friendly and warm man. O and the breakast is delicious:)
Cons: Nada
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I wanted to stay outside of Palenque in the jungle and that was exactly what I got. Breakfast was delicious, fresh fruit, good coffee and sweet bread. The owner was a lovely man. He went above and beyond to make sure I was ok. He even wanted to send me off with a packed breakfast when I had to leave on an early flight. It was beautiful, tranquil and overall a lovely stay.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. The owner is such a nice person, he tries to welcome every guest and he is a person that is willing to help you. He was so nice than the day we arrived and we were starving, he gave us a ride to Palenque Downtown to the area where the restaurants are located. Breakfast is simple but delicious and fulfilling. The hotel is not big and it is in the middle of nowhere but it has a nice garden and each room has a parking spot.
Cons: You have to take a bus, taxi or getting a car to get to the property. Its not terrible but you really need a transportation to make it either to the town or to the ruins (it is not expensive around 5 usd). The place does not have lunch or dinner, so this is more a place to relax after exploring the ruins or the town and thats all.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Carlos is an amazing host. So helpful and really made our stay so enjoyable. The hotel is modern spacious and very well appointed. It is well located in a beautiful setting close to the ruins.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: What a beautiful hotel in the middle of the jungle! You can tell the owner took time to make this a resort where both people and animals come to relax (a family of howler monkeys lives in the backyard of this hotel!!!). It really gave us the jungle experience we were looking for (didn't take a jungle tour at the archeological site anymore because the hotel is located in the middle of the jungle and wildlife can be seen around the hotel). The staff could speak proper English (something you don't see everywhere in Mexico) and they gave us bananas whenever we wanted to feed the howler monkeys. The room was amazing, very spacious and luxurious. Would love to have that shower at home! Also very clean. Especially for the owner: wir haben die Deutsche gründlichkeit wirklich bemerkt bei euch. Vielen dank für diese wundervolle Erfahrung! Sie können stolz sein auf was Sie hier gemacht haben!
Cons: Palenque itself isn't that interesting (the city centre I mean). So if you want to see the archeological site and the jungle, see howler monkeys closeby and other animals like macaw parrots flying over and relax at a beautiful pool, then you should really stay in this hotel. Nothing bad to say about the hotel. Trust me: it's worth every penny!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This boutique hotel is a bit pricey but it’s worth every penny!

2.5 Mediocre
Cons: Careful the manager is a thief. When you arrive he will not make you pay 16% taxes as agreed on booking.com but 30%. He said we should have booked through airbnb. And finally kept 25% of the caution. The rest of the crew is nice.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: It's a lovely hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location within a very short driving distance of the Palenque ruins. Beautiful property with pool overlooking the forest – beautiful to wake up to the sounds of Scarlet Macaws and howler monkeys! The room was deluxe, spacious, sparkling clean, and AC worked like a dream (very welcome in the strong heat and humidity). Staff were friendly and helpful, and I especially enjoyed conversations with the outgoing chef. Breakfast (in the realm of $5) was really tasty – I definitely recommend the ice-cold juice, strong coffee, and delicious tamales and chilaquiles. And, as a bonus, filtered water is available free on-site for guests. Overall, I highly recommend Hotel Casa Lakyum. Just a friendly reminder: the Palenque-area seems to have a higher density of scorpions than other areas in the lowland jungle of Chiapas. Always remember to check inside clothes and shoes before putting them on, especially first thing in the morning!
Cons: Wifi is only available in the reception area (doesn't quite reach rooms).
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Nice facilities and welcoming and helpful staff. Excellent value for money. The view from the terrace is breathtaking and the atmosphere is peaceful and quiet. The breakfast was amazing.
Cons: Nothing really, except the poor wifi signal in my bedroom but it is a minor detail
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Amazing view on the jungle from the breakfast terrasse or the swimming pool. A 60’s legacy charming hotel which is perfectly located for visiting the ruins and enjoying the nature. The jungle sounds ambiance at sunrise and sunset are peaceful. Good breakfast and very kind personnel.
6.3 Good
Pros: - The view - Clean rooms - Good AC
Cons: - the team, very unfriendly although we tried to speak spanish a lot, and not helpful at all - They tried to scam us for 400 pesos - no hot water - you can order almost nothing from the restaurant, they had no juices or anything else left
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's position is just fantastic. Near Palenque city but also near the ruins. It's very easy to catch a collective bus to the ruins and ff you like to walk, you can start on the top, walk down to the lower entrance and from there walk to the hotel. There is a good walking way. Although it is beside the road (separate lane) there is not much traffic on that road and with some luck you see monkeys, buterflies or lizards just beside the road. The hotel is also nice to just spend one day at the pool and relax.
Cons: There is no restaurant service at the hotel but there are restaurants nearby.
